Mr. Chan Tze Woon, artist of “Faraway Warehouse” won the Hong Kong Arts Development Award 2016–Award for Young Artist (film) of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council

Mr. Chan Tze Woon, artist of “Faraway Warehouse” was awarded the Hong Kong Arts Development Award 2016–Award for Young Artist (film) of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. Mr. Chan’s creative pursuits feature Hong Kong political environment and social movements. Mr. Chan’s works are recognised for his personal style and experimental spirit, challenging the established perceptions of documentaries and dramatic films.
Mr. Chan created the debut mockumentary short, titled “The Aqueous Truth”, in 2013 which strengthened his determination to be an independent filmmaker. In 2014, the mockumentary style was re-curred in his second short film, “Being Rain: Representation and Will”, mirrored the political atmosphere of Hong Kong at that time using “conspiracy theory” which brought him the Best Creativity Award in Open Division, Local Competition in the Fresh Wave International Short Film Festival and shortlisted in Open Division of the Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video Awards.
Mr. Chan put himself up to the challenge of making different films and produced his first full-length documentary, “Yellowing”, in 2016 using first-hand perspective, recorded how some selected protesters felt, their ups-and-downs and trivia at the scene. As the director was directly involved and experienced the movement with the selected protesters, “Yellowing” distinguished itself from other documentaries on the Umbrella Movement. The film was shortlisted for the Best Documentary of the Golden Horse Awards and participated in a number of international film festivals.
